Poem from Chapter 5
My heart is drowning in an ache of eternity. Silhouettes of
your smile bind my splitting heart. Perpetual daggers are
consumed and buried within, slicing each memory parting
from sin. I embrace the past as the place I adore and the
place where I rest, a place that’s no more. Each moment
there sublime and it paints my heart darker in time. Be
day, be night, it matters not. For one tiny thought is all I’ve
got. Clear reminiscences of your kisses are not in vain. Not
a single deed, lone word, sole sound is without your touch.
Barely holding descending thoughts are nothing more
than fading shadows and whispers. My love I so dearly
adore. I will never have failed more.
